Have an ancient device still clinging to memories of its 2014 glory days? Verizon has your back. The United States’ largest mobile carrier is offering you up to $300 credit toward a new device when you upgrade your current line or activate a new line. If you’re switching to Verizon from another carrier, you could be eligible for up to $650 to help get you out of your old contract.

The carrier is going out of their way to point out that this offer applies even if your phone is a bit busted up. Cracked screens might reduce how much you get back for your device, but even devices bearing clear evidence of your rampant irresponsibility are eligible for this trade-in, so long as the device you’re looking to buy is a Droid Turbo 2 or Maxx 2.

In addition to those two devices, this trade-in also applies to the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, HTC 10, LG G5, and – if you’re looking to go off the reservation completely – the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. For new customers, credit received for their trade-in will take the form of a gift card. Existing customers will get the amount attributed to their account. You can access this deal via brick and mortar retailers or through the carrier’s website over here.
